Blake's First Birthday Card

Finally, I am posting my grandson's first birthday card. I have been saving my cards and not posting them as soon as I am done, just for the sake of having something new to post each week. This card was made with the DSP Greenhouse Gala. I thought that the colors were great for a birthday card, especially for a one year old.

As usual when I am done I can think of other things I could have done to it to make it stand out more. For instance, I could have used crystal effects on the frosting of the cupcake. I could have used dazzling diamonds ep too. What is done is done though. I did give the letters and saying some dimension by adding two colors and making them just a little off centered to each other. I really like the look it leaves.

Just in case you are wondering.......I used crazy for cupcakes and the defining alphabet stamp sets. The cardstock colors used are real red, pear pizzazz, whisper white, baja breeze, and pumpkin pie.

I wanted this card to be a keepsake that his mommy will keep for him until he gets older. I am not sure if she did keep it, but that was up to her.

Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment, and it is your turn to.............Go-n-stamp!!
